  • Hyundai has announced the technical specs of the upcoming Hyundai IONIQ 6.

    A 77.4-kWh battery is mated to an aerodynamically sculpted silhouette to an estimated all-electric range of over 379 miles (WLTP) standard, as well as ultra-fast, 400-V/800-V multi-charging capability made possible by Hyundai Motor Group’s Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).

    The IONIQ 6 also has what may be Hyundai’s most aerodynamic styling to date and an array of empowering features, such as Dual Color Ambient Lighting, Speed Sync Lighting, EV Performance Tune-up and Electric Active Sound Design (e-ASD), enhancing the electric mobility experience. With WLTP-estimated energy consumption under 14 kWh/100 km, IONIQ 6 will also be one of the most energy-efficient EVs on the market.

    The Hyundai IONIQ 6 is planned to begin production in the third quarter of 2022. The market launch schedule will be announced later.
